Didier Barrouillet in the cellar at Clos Roche Blanche

"Wines of Nature" - A Dinner in Celebration of Clos Roche Blanche, Wed, April 3rd at Racines NY!


Please join us at Racines NY on Wednesday, April 3rd at 7pm as we host Didier Barroulllet of the Clos Roche Blanche in a celebration of this important Loire Valley estate.  Beginning in the 1980s, Catherine Roussel and Didier Barrouillet at the Clos Roche Blanche in Touraine began a journey of discovery beginning with organic farming, through biodynamics and beyond, to some of the most intelligent and beautiful farming and winemaking we have ever experienced. Their estate became part of a movement, principally in the Loire Valley and Beaujolais, leading to more natural methods of farming and vinification that have inspired vignerons all over the world. Through their importer, Louis-Dressner Selections, their wines became known and loved by consumers in the US and helped to create the enormous interest in "wines of nature" in this country. Didier Barrouillet will join us, there will be a few speeches, dinner, and lots of 2014 Clos Roche Blanche to drink. Feel free to bring bottles of CRB or comparable wines to share. Price $140 all inclusive. (All proceeds will go to Partners in Health in conjunction with our March 31st PIH tasting.)
